Completely Shut In

  I myself am an introvert- even when I was younger and forced to socialize, I thought the other girls at school had too wild personalities and that I didn't fit in with them. I'd still go to all the middle school dances and for a while I was almost an extrovert, going to the mall on weekends and hanging with friends every free day I had. But now I'm an introvert, someone who keeps to themselves and likes to stay in rather than go to parties.
  I started to embrace this introvert quality this year in particular, deciding I wasn't going to be another popular girl clone and dress like they did. I'd dress however I wanted, dye my hair the colors I liked, and listen to music because I liked it, not because it was what all the other girls listened to. I was becoming more independent.
  My dad didn't particularly like this, however, as he thought I was becoming a shut-in who never left her room or the computer. This was coming from the man who had once complained about driving my friends and I everywhere, and was now complaining I didn't go anywhere at all. I couldn't win!
  Now I've learned that being an introvert doesn't make you a loser. However someone wants to spend their free time is their choice, as its their life. That means I will spend my free time blogging, playing guitar, painting, listening to records, and lifelessly exploring the internet. Those are my personal favorite things to do. Just because I don't go to the mall everyday to buy the latest $200 Abercrombie jeans doesn't mean I'm uncool. (We'll explain why I'm uncool in a later post).
